I've read about the Feather Dusters too. Very sad, they are unable to fly at all and as Suenem says they don't live long, often only weeks or months. :(

Wow! I can see why though. It would be hard to get around with all of those feathers! Poor things.

It's a mutation that I think develops mostly from poor breeding. It seems exotic, but it's not desirable or healthy for the birds.

yeh they don't live long because their feathers are continually growing and they develop a protein deficiency. Its also genetic so theres the opportunity to prevent this.
